By the end of the 14th Century they serve as a kind of a ruling organ of the Coven with Viktor at the top. At the time there are twelve seats on the Council but it is not stated if that count includes the presiding Elder. The notary, a position held by Andreas Tanis at the time, is present during council but does not hold a seat. The regent, a position held by Kraven at the time of the first movie, most likely does not hold a seat but since being tasked to carry out the will of the Council may be allowed to attend and speak before them.
The council members are seen in the films Underworld and Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. At the end of Underworld, all of them are dead at the hands of Lycans, at the end of Rise of the Lycans only the Elders have survived. Known council members include:
- ↑ "There are twelve seats on the Council." ~Andreas Tanis
- ↑ "Now you'll be lucky if I can convince the Council to spare your life." ~Kraven
